* Christopher Titus discussed this in stand-up, reporting that while he was borderline-hedonistic, his father was also a loving and responsible man.... But when drunk his personality would flip and he'd often say horrible things that destroyed his children's self-confidence. Titus said that as a little boy not understanding what was going on it felt less like his dad was getting drunk and having a personality shift and more like his father transformed into a super-hero who waged war on self-esteem.

* Christopher Titus Creator/ChristopherTitus discussed this in stand-up, reporting that while he was borderline-hedonistic, his father was also a loving and responsible man.... But when drunk his personality would flip and he'd often say horrible things that destroyed his children's self-confidence. Titus said that as a little boy not understanding what was going on it felt less like his dad was getting drunk and having a personality shift and more like his father transformed into "Anti-Dad!", a super-hero who waged war on self-esteem.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'': Woodes Rogers gets very drunk in a party towards the end of the game after having been called back to England, and as a result he gets much, ''much'' more honest than he usually is.
-->'''Noblewoman''': How is your wife doing?\\
'''Rogers''': I haven't the faintest idea, and I don't intend to inquire any further. We separated almost five years ago, and both our lives have been the better for it. [...] Perhaps I'll be more candid later, when the remainder of my reason has left me.
** And in the same scene...
--->'''Rogers''': ...And yet, for all my successes, his majesty has seen fit to sack me! And call me back to England! God bless the fucker!

Added DiffLines:

* A DiscussedTrope in the ''Series/{{Titans}}'' episode [[Recap/TitansS1E5Together "Together"]]. Kory buys a big bottle of tequila and brings to Dick's room, hoping to get some answers about him, since he isn't exactly a big sharer. However, Dick immediately realises she has this on her mind, even [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] this trope. So they [[CoitusEnsues just end up sleeping together instead]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/ShootOutAtMedicineBend'', Clark tells Nell to interrogate Clegg and find out if he and his two companions were ever in the cavalry. She does this by getting him drunk. While drunk, Clegg blabs absolutely everything; from the fact that they've just mustered out of the army to the secret shipment of goods King has coming in.


* In Hanako's route in ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', when they drink wine at her party, she gets drunk and starts clinging at Hisao, telling him she doesn't want him to leave, altogether being much more open about her emotions [[ShrinkingViolet than usual]]. Hisao, who had also been drinking, finds this quite discomforting and is very firm about putting her to bed [[AboveTheInfluence before either of them do anything they'd regret.]]

* [[https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/30/us/politics/how-fbi-russia-investigation-began-george-papadopoulos.html George Papadopoulos]], a foreign policy aide to UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, reportedly went out to a London bar and drunkenly bragged to a top Australian diplomat that Moscow had offered him stolen emails as part of an effort to damage UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton's campaign. The Australian tipped off the FBI, which prompted an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. This has resulted in a world of headaches for the Trump administration and a guilty plea from Papadopoulos on charges of lying to the FBI. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment In short]], one of the biggest scandals in modern politics got started because a drunk guy couldn't keep his mouth shut.

Added DiffLines:

* Heartwarming example in ''Fanfic/TowardABrightFuture'': After a mild night of dinner and drinking after the students' final exams, the normally aloof [[SternTeacher Aizawa]] thanks his teaching assistant and the main character [[CoolTeacher Y/N]] for all the help he has given to his class and for looking out for everyone, prefacing it with a disclaimer that he is drunk, will say something he won't normally say, and that she shouldn't tell him afterwards.


* The basic concept behind most real life {{Truth Serum}}s is that they render a person more likely to talk in general and less able to come up with a convincing lie. Incidentally, the only two substances that have been proven to be fairly consistently effective as (relative) {{Truth Serum}}s are alcohol and marijuana. The former was a favorite of the KGB, whose agents were [[VodkaDrunkenski able to keep cover while their Western opposite numbers started gushing]]. The latter was tried out by the FBI, in the form of THC-laced cigarettes, on a member of TheMafia, who spilled the beans on a heist, embarrassing the {{CIA}}'s [[GovernmentConspiracy MKULTRA]] (which was trying to do the same thing with more exotic substances like acid) in the process.

** Barney goes through several stages of drunkeness, including "Richard Dawson Drunk" (he kisses every woman he meets like the ''Series/FamilyFeud'' host); "Friends With Strangers Drunk"; "Marcel Marceau Drunk" (he walks like the famous mime's walk-against-the-wind routine); "Jabba Drunk" (he talks incoherently like [[Franchise/StarWars Jabba the Hut]]; and finally, "Truth Serum Drunk", where he compulsively tells the truth.

* ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' really had fun with this in "The Fight". There was super-positive Leslie crying and babbling over her fight with Ann, [[CasanovaWannabe Tom's]] inflated ego, serious Ben saying "Baba Booey" in an extremely self-satisfied tone, Andy's intense singing, [[TheSnarkKnight April's]] incoherent rapid-fire Spanish, and...

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': When Tyrion is exceptionally drunk he lets hidden sides of himself rise to the surface. He tells Shae and Bronn about his disastrous first marriage in a very depressed tone. After drinking heavily during his wedding, he struggles more than usual to contain his contempt for Joffrey and Lord Tywin and angrily threatens to castrate Joffrey when pushed too far.

** Before Roose Bolton shows his true colors it's mentioned a few times that his being a teetotaler marks him as suspicious to most people because of this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* Invoked in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice''. In Turnabout Storyteller, this is the only way to get [[spoiler:Uendo Toneido to reveal his hidden fourth persona, who is a key character to the murderer's identity, though all the wine does it knock Uendo and the other personalities out for Owen to come out in the open, since Owen himself can't come out while the other three are out at the same time]].
